Coming April 10th, 2009, Red Dwarf returns to television on channel Dave with a brand new two-part series. After eight series totalling 52 episodes, Dave Lister will finally return to his home planet in Red Dwarf: Back To Earth. Twenty one years after the series began, the original cast will be reunited: Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten. The new episodes are written and directed by Red Dwarf co-creator Doug Naylor.
Two additional television specials will also be produced. The Making of Back to Earth is a behind the scenes look at the new production and Red Dwarf: Unplugged delivers the cast they've never been seen before – no sets, no effects… and no cue cards.
Danny John-Jules has been playing Lenny Bricknall on M.I. High.
Craig Charles has been playing Lloyd Mullaney on Coronation Street.
Weekly new updates will be provided every Wednesday at noon on Dave website.
